Performance Index

One of the fastest growing sports in North America, soccer is becoming mainstream, and as a result, nations within the continent are seeing their results on the pitch improve while producing global talent in the process.

Soccer has always found it difficult to compete with the likes of the NFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB, yet over last decade some of the nations that make up the CONCACAF confederation have improved their global standing significantly. The constant growth of the MLS has been a major factor, where stars such as David Beckham, David Villa and Thierry Henry have all played in the last decade – they’re soon to be joined by Toronto FC’s latest addition, Lorenzo Insigne.

These big-name arrivals have played their part in inspiring a generation and we’re seeing many top talents move from North America to Europe. Many even compete in the top European leagues and the prestigious Champions League. The success and experience of these players at club level is reflected in their national form, where competition amongst CONCACAF nations is fiercer than ever and precious few World Cup spots up for grabs.

BetVictor’s CONCACAF Performance Index analyzes all 41 member nations and their respective players to determine which country reigns supreme. The research explores results and individual performances from the past 365 days to determine an average ranking to place each nation, while also diving into some of CONCACAF’s top exports in Europe’s top five leagues.

FIFA World Rankings & CONCACAF Rating

Along with wanting to win and progress in major tournaments, all international sides are striving to climb up the FIFA World Rankings. These standings are built up based on coefficient points collected from every fixture that each nation plays, whether it’s competitive or non-competitive.

The top rankings are dominated by the predictably big European and South American nations, but CONCACAF is a confederation on the rise. With the United States & Mexico both making the top 20.

USA is enjoying one of its best spells in the world rankings, with the Stars and Stripes occupying a place in the top 20 since mid-2021 and the USMNT currently find themselves in 11th following a superb 2021, with Mexico just behind in 14th. Canada is the pair’s closest competitor from the continent as the Maple Leafs are currently ranked 40th in the world.

But just how do the CONCACAF nations fare up when against each other in our weighted ranking system? Taking in account several elements such as tournament wins, World Cup qualification progress, players actively playing in Europe’s top five divisions and much more – see which nations lead in our performance index below.
